  • Main Point: The true promise of cloud isn’t just about advancing IT; it’s about reinventing business. Over half of business executives believe cloud enables business transformation and leaner, faster, more agile processes. This is strategic thinking. But organizations that approach cloud in a tactical fashion risk adding complexity and inefficiency due to fragmentation, redundancy and operating silos. In contrast, organizations that embrace cloud strategically—from a business as well as IT perspective—can capture new business value through innovation, flexibility, and speed, with integrity and security – while reducing cost and complexity. CIO survey: 81% - Are moving to Cloud, with 62% of CIOs and business leaders citing it as the top priority 70% - Are concerned about the ability to see and understand their Cloud environments 43% - Are focused on improving Cloud efficiency, speed and control
  • You can’t see them You can’t patch them You can’t back them up. You only know they’re there because you’re paying for them.
  • Virtualization is just the beginning of the progression to cloud computing. IBM SmartCloud Foundation provides different solutions to meet the needs of clients regardless of where they are in the progression.
  • Higher expectations than before from business that cloud and virtualization can provide an edge to deliver products and services faster, better and cheaper. IT needs to find ways to exploit their virtualization investment and make smart decisions about implementing cloud that delivers business outcomes without increasing risk or cost Depending on where a client is on the cloud computing progression there are different entry points for Cloud Management: For a client that has virtualized with VMware or other virtualization technologies, but is looking to really see that return on investment that cloud promises, Virtualization Optimization is a great place to start. This may be a great fit for GB or Midmarket Customers. For a client looking to delver services faster and truly take the cloud computing paradigm across the entire data center including compute, network, and storage provisioning Dynamic Data Center may be the best entry point. Enterprise customers are often a great fit Dynamic Data Center

  • IBM Systems Technical Universities– Budapest, Hungary – October 15-19 Why is Cloud Management Important? “The time available to capture, interpret and act on “Virtualization has just allowed us to get ourselves information is getting shorter and shorter.” into trouble faster” CEO, Chemicals and Petroleum, United States 2 North American Financial Institution of business executives believe cloud enables business transformation and leaner, faster, more agile processes.“ … at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter ifwhat you have is called a private cloud, a wellrun data center or a unicorn ranch. Whatmatters is that if your private cloud isbasically lots of virtualization and little orno automation and orchestration, then youaren’t gaining the benefits you could. Onlywhen automation and orchestration hit theirstride will you begin to enjoy full operational 81%efficiencies.”1 McKinsey on Business Technology, Spring 2011 of CIOs are moving to Cloud 1 – InformationWeek Report Private Cloud Vision v.s Reality © 2012 IBM Corporation 2- 2012 IBM CEO Study

  • IBM Systems Technical Universities– Budapest, Hungary – October 15-19Virtualization can increase costs if not it’s not optimized  Virtualization environments are running in 90% of businesses, but virtualization isn’t cheap, and it’s definitely not free. – Hypervisor promises of cutting infrastructure expense by 60% have given way to 300% increases in license costs  While costs rise, so does image volume… and now they’re in as many as four hypervisors. – More than 50% of virtualization environments today have more than one brand of hypervisor. – Number of virtual machines in use in data centers has increased 10x in 10 years – Average number of images “destroyed?” No one knows…  Bringing these environments to optimum performance – without dismantling existing infrastructure – is a key challenge – You can’t see always see them patch them or back them up. – You only know they exist when you get the bill. © 2012 IBM Corporation
